            Patch :

            http://ghusse.free.fr/patch/visibility.patch

            Now :

            • A course created in an hidden category is automatically set to hidden
            • A course can not be set as visible in an invisible category
            • A course moved to a invisible category is set to invisible
            • When a category is set to invisible, all the subcategories and all the courses under are set to invisible
            • When a course is set to visible, all the parent categories are set to visible but not their courses.

            This issue is fixed in both stable and development brach. But a different approach is applied.

            I've undone this patch in 1.5.3+ because several big sites depended on it. It needs to be addressed properly in 1.6 or later, perhaps with an option.

            An option for this has indeed been introduced in one of the versions since this bug was filed.
